(May 16, 2012) The freshman closed out a banner first season for Roland Park, capturing the individual title at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland's A Conference championship on Thursday and leading the Reds to their sixth straight team title. Over two days and 18 holes at Fox Hollow Golf Course, Owen shot consecutive 38s for a 4-over-par 76 that was 12 strokes better than three runner-up finishers. She started Wednesday's play with a birdie on the opening hole and ended the championship with a birdie in windy conditions Thursday. The Reds repeated as the team champion with an eight-stroke win over second-place McDonogh, 156-164 (the low two out of four players is scored on each hole). Owen earned the No. 1 spot on the team at the start of the season and -- paired with No. 2 player Meredith Birely -- went 8-0 during the regular season playing matches using the four ball format.
Others considered: Ella Cooper, Friends, lacrosse; Corinne Etchison, McDonogh, lacrosse; Kim Federowicz, Chesapeake-AA, softball; Taylor Hensh, Marriotts Ridge, lacrosse.
